August and September are shaping up to be banner months for Comedian of Comedy
Patton Oswalt. In between bouts of the usual wackity-schmackity doo
, he'll star in Big Fan
, one of Sundance 2009's surprise hits. The flick is currently slated for an Aug. 28 release, mere days after his fourth standup album, My Weakness Is Strong!
, hits the streets.
will see an Aug. 25 CD/DVD release on Warner Bros. Records
. The album's cover
is a parody of everyone's favorite fundamentalist-Christian comic artist Jack Chick
, which probably means we're in for another helping of gleeful irreverence from a man who self-identifies as a "stone-cold atheist."
And just to make sure he doesn't have a single spare moment of respite in between finishing his book
and promoting both his movie and album, Oswalt has scheduled some mid-September shows, tickets for which have just gone on sale
